It looks as though Day 3 of this year's WSOP Main Event is going to be very interesting indeed after Phil Ivey put in another dominant performance on Day 2C.
The high stakes pro managed to finish in second place on Day 1C and it seems he was able to carry that momentum on in the early hours of this morning's session after banking over 500,000 chips (see below). Despite focusing on cash games during the Series in previous years, Ivey seems to have stepped up his MTT game this year and with one bracelet already in the bag it looks as though a deep Main Event run could be on the cards. Indeed, back in 2009 Ivey managed to make it to the final table, but after a hopeful start he eventually crashed out in 7th place for $1.4 million. This year, however, he looks to be on fine form and will be the man to catch as the tournament starts to move into the business end of proceedings tomorrow. While Phil Ivey was rising, Phil Hellmuth became one of the many high profile casualties on Day 2C. The Poker Brat couldn't keep pace with the field and eventually fell midway through the session, but he did manage to return to the felt 30-minutes later to sign some autographs and pose for pictures with his fans. Other notables still in contention include John Hennigan, Tom Marchese, John Juanda, Nick Schulman, Barry Greenstein and Daniel Negreanu.It was a decent day for the Brits with Stuart Rutter, Jake Cody and JP Kelly amongst the home contingent surviving the day.At the close of Day 2C the field now stands at around 1,400 players and the bubble is expected to hit at some point on Day 4.
